Welcome to SwitchPrinter! Our exe plugin to switch printers automatically.

'Cause switching printers should be free

Copyright 2007 Youseful Software www.youseful.com

Version 1

Features

==================================

This exe plugin allows you

1) To select records to print

2) The Printer to print to.

3) whether or not you want to show the dialog

Install

=============

Copy the exe plugin SwitchPrinter2.exe to the same directory as your FileMaker exe.

How to Use

=============================

Basically you send this exe a string made up of the following:

1) PrinterName (as shown in the Printers&Faxes folder)

2) Records to Print as a number. (0 - Records being browsed, 1 - Current

Record, 2 - Blank Record)

3) Whether to Show the Printer Dialog (0 - No, 1 - Yes)

This string is pipe deliminated.

For example :) FAX|1|1

This says print to FAX/Current Record and Show the print Dialog.

FileMaker has a script step called SendEvent. There is a calculation option.

Basically, you build the string and add the exe plugin's name.See enclosed Demo for Details.

NOTE WELL:

There is a "hidden" parameter. Instead of FAX|0|1 , you would have

FAX|0|1|25 . This parameter defaults to 25. If it doesn't work reliably

increasing the number to 50,75,100 should help.

This exe plugin will be incorporated as a base part of the forthcoming Select Printer 4.
